Currently, I’m filling a CV (I will tell later what this CV is for) and it was fine until I saw that the CV required a life motto. I’m quite practical and I don’t need a certain motto to live my life. Perhaps I follow a motto unconsciously but really, I don’t really pay attention to the words. However, there are some words said by either fictional or real people that will be nice to be life motto. Here I try to make the list.
“That which does not kill us makes us stronger”
When I was a teenager, I had some big problem and these words from Nietzsche helped me stay strong. Now I’m not a teenager anymore and I sometimes feel that I’m not so strong as I was. Perhaps I should remember this saying again.
“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
I fail a lot in medical school but I choose to continue studying medicine. Does that count?
“You are human with one life and it is up to you to make it the best life you can.”
I sometimes think I watch YouTube too much that I quote on a YouTuber. Those are nice words anyway.
“I don’t have superpowers, there’s no magic spell. But I remain faithful for things to go well.”
That’s a part of “I’ve Got What It Takes” lyrics by Alex Day. The song is like an affirmation for me.
“To have another language is to possess a second soul.”
I like learning language and those words make me feel like Voldemort with some horcruxes. Whoa, I possess other souls in the form of languages.
“There are no accidents.”
I just love this quote. No much comments about it.
“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”
This quote is about determination and persistence: two things that -I admit- I sometimes lack of.
